Tom Brady sits out after cutting his right thumb with scissors

AP

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is nursing a cut on the thumb on his throwing hand.

Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com reports that Brady sliced his right thumb with a pair of scissors today and left Gillette Stadium.

According to the report, Brady was trying to remove something from the bottom of his shoe when he suffered the injury.

It is unclear how serious the cut is, and unknown whether Brady will play in any preseason games at all. But it doesn’t sound like anything serious enough that it would affect him in October, when he returns to the field after his four-game Deflategate suspension.

  1. A player that crucial to the team should have a “no sharp instruments” clause in his contract. He should have an assistant cut his meat and remove tags from clothes, and grow a Ryan Fitzpatrick beard.

  2. Ah, I guess the world knows now where his new hiding spot is for the deflating needle. Guess he should find an easier place to access than in his shoes.

  3. He did it on purpose, Gisele needs him at home to scrub the toilets and mop the floor. For the next 8 weeks.

  4. It’s jimmy g time. Playing great tonight. Accuracy, poise clutch and gonads. Sorry haters but he’s the second best qb in afc east behind the goat. Another afc east title coming our way.

  5. Honestly the Bears D is not that scary. This stinks of something but I’m not sure what it is.

  6. This just in. Ted Wells determines that it is more probable than not that Brady was generally aware that the scissors were sharp. Cost to Goodell….priceless

    … and when he returns, Brady is going to slice up your defense (again).
    ____________

    Denver obviously exempt from above.

  8. Patsies looked like garbage, cutler shredded them . Patsies did nothing till late second quarter when the future burger servers were out there

    Cutting up the film from the Bears walkthrough.

    ————————————————————

    Your attempt at being funny failed since you mixed up the teams. It was the Broncos that were fined for filming another teams walk through. Brady never played for the Broncos.

    +++++++

    And if there’s one thing a troll knows it’s having a future as a burger server, once they are old enough to work that is

    Lol, child, the pats 3rd string QB had a better night that Cutler. Chi-babies are losing by double digits right now.

    Must be difficult to use scissors while wearing 4 of those oversized superbowl champion rings.

    Plus a wedding ring given to him by a supermodel.

    Most 2nd graders can manage to use scissors without injuring themselves.

    Glad to see you said most and weren’t claiming you could do something that’s beyond you. It’s important to recognize your limitations and to remember to wear your special padded helmet, especially on the troll bus

  14. You can tell who is having fun with a headline like this as they should. Then you can tell who are taking it too seriously and getting offended.
    I prefer the fun posts. Then I chuckle when I see the “omg 4 rings” posts thinking about how they’re getting all upset over the Internet

  15. Hate Brady,hate the Pats. The truth is Brady is getting rest and coming back week 5 angry and and fresh. I have a feeling they are gonna go on a tear. Gonna embarrass some teams. Hopefully not my Bills.

    For the sake of you and the non troll portion of the Bills fan base I hope not too. They seem to do a good enough job embarrassing themselves without his help

    Typical Pats’ fan cheating the board.

  18. Grow up children. Brady has two streaks of over 100 games. One stopped by an ACL and the other because there is a vindictive, vile commissioner. Your lives must be quite empty to sit in wait for anything Patriot, get over it ,this winning will continue and you will continue to be miserable for years to come. Give it up for your own sanity.

    You have no proof he did this. It’s a fact, the natural gas law proves that he did not have scissors in his hands at all.

    I try to be clever and funny but come off as an idiot. Natural gas law?

  21. Arts and Bob Kraft.

    Seriously… what could you be removing from the bottom of your shoe with scissors? That’s not the way to remove dog poop. Although in the Brady household, maybe it is, “just throw the scissors away ” – Gizzle.

  22. Troll away . . . love the jealousy

    How’s your QB playing tonight? Yeah, I thought so. Wish you had Brady don’t you.

    Gee Ohh Ayee Tea

    Lobster, Larry, Bobby, Pedro and Tommy!

  23. He was cleaning his cleats.

    The idiot cohort is out in force tonight, I see. I hope you are all fully inflating your tires at 4 a.m. every day. Hot summer, nothing could go wrong…according to your understanding of science.

  24. It’s understandable they wanted to keep the deflator needle out of Brady’s hands, but they should have given him something like a ruler or stapler, and not the scissors to occupy him.

  25. Just one way to describe it. Punks Just punks. Every single one of you fan boys equal punks. All of you. You keep screaming yet nothing happened. AWWWWWH. nothing. EEEERRRRRREEAHHH. Nothing. 4 games. Get over it. Delete it of course but you teach them nothing.

    You fool! It is not even called “the natural gas law”, but then again, that is the sort of ignorance we have come to expect from hater nation.

    doesnt he have butlers to do this sort of thing?

    – yeah, And he wears # 21

    seriously, aren’t you embarrassed when you realize your comment has already been posted a couple of times? what’s it like being the slow troll?

    Um that was McDaniels and Sarnecchia…….Billy’s boys yep…….doing what they do until Bowlen sliced that boil away

    Maybe Tom found humor in Ryan Lochtes tall tales and tried his own brand of excuse giving.

    ONE ring in the last 12 years….

    mufngruf says:

    and THAT was only because of a fluky goal-line interception which, of course, wasn’t made by Brady….

    ————-

    Actually, 12 years actually includes 2004, so that would be 2 Supr Bowl wins, 4 appearances and 8 AFC championship appearances and the last 5 in a row.

    even without the first 3 years he would still be in the top few QBs of all time.

    Marino had zero Supet Bowl wins. Zero! He’s stills even as good. It’s very hard.

    Since 2001 Brady has been to 2 of every 3 AFC Championships. And almost half the Super Bowls.

    That’s insane.

    And that fluky goal line INT came after a fluky catch by Kearse or there wouldn’t have been an opportunity for Seattle to win. It’s part of the game. Brady got two touchdowns to eliminate a 10 point deficit in the 4th so he did all he could.

    He had is team in a position to win every Super Bowl they appeared in. Flukey stuff happens both ways and you can’t win’em all.

  30. Sports is entertainment. Some of these Brady fanboys take defending any minute joke against Brady to an uncomfortable level. Who knew this level of male emotion over another man existed outside the Castro District?

  31. Brady could severe his left thumb and still put up 300+ yards against the Bills.

    What does his left hand have to do with anything? Other than patting the ball perhaps. You just try so hard to knock the Bills when you can, but considering you apparent juvenile state, you need to think things through before you state them.

    besides, Id be far more impressed if he severed his right thumb and threw for 300 yards

    Why is Tom Brady so easy to hate?

    ————————

    Simple. If you’re not a fan of the Patriots long, generational run of excellence led by the best QB the game has seen, then well, you probably hate him. I get it.

    It’s been exhausting for non-Patriots fans to see them in the AFC title game and Super Bowl seemingly every year.

  33. “Simple. If you’re not a fan of the Patriots long, generational run of excellence led by the best QB the game has seen, then well, you probably hate him. I get it.”

    ****

    Spoken like someone who never saw Joe Montana play.

    I’ve never seen a successful quarterback be as hated as Tom Brady. Why is that? Pats fans? Why is that??
